Access HE pan-London organisation for Higher Education

Evidence & Evaluation Forum

Chair: Matt Hiely-Rayner, Director of Planning, Kingston University London.

Vice-Chair: Shireen Quraishi, Senior Access Officer (Evaluation), UCL

This forum provides a termly meeting for those staff from AccessHE member HEIs responsible for providing evidence for and/or evaluating the impact of their outreach activities.

In 2017-18, the forum developed a resource-sharing webpage, coordinated a member survey and report on the use of POLAR and other measures of ‘disadvantage’ in the London context, facilitated a dialogue around effective evaluation with colleagues from OFFA/OfS, and shared good practice in evaluating attainment-raising activities within schools and GDPR compliance in outreach activity.


  • To exchange and develop good practice.
  • Maintain the members-only online resources page.
  • To advocate to policy-makers on access issues affecting London HEIs.
  • To offer continued support for the Impact London project.
